A Quick Nightstand Makeover

Purchased recently at a local estate sale, I love the lines of this piece but that original finish was a bit boring!

Before:

Enter some Homeplate chalk paint, a little distressing and a little waxing:

So much prettier now and you can actually appreciate the lovely lines!

Made by R. Veal & Sons here in Albany Oregon – a few miles south of Salem.  They closed their doors in the 1980’s after generations of furniture production.Terrific construction and solid maple, I adore their furniture whenever I am lucky enough to find it.  Maple seems to need a little pizzazz to perk it up.  Add some paint and you are good to go!

  1. You did a great job! Love the white. I have a thing for night stands too, but I put them in other places than beside a bed. Visiting from Vintage Charm. Diane
